My name is Martina Bennick.  I graduated Bloomsburg University as a geobiologist.  I hike a lot, and geology field work is super exciting, so I'm happy to be out doing more stuff that helps animals!

I love being with the dogs and it's so amazing to see all of their different personalities and spirits! This is the best volunteer experience I've ever had.  I started out working in the kennels, but have since switched to helping with computer stuff so that I can be involved wherever I move.

Hey y'all, my name is Gregg and I recently moved here from southern Ohio. I am 42, love to cook, hike, go fishing, and some sports. Being a part of K9 Hero Haven is such a huge blessing, these critters are a lot of fun and there's never a dull moment amongst them.

​​ My name is Jen Bennick. I served 6 years in the Air Force before receiving an honorable medical discharge.  I adopted my dog, Inga, a shepherd/ husky mix, in 2013 from a shelter when she was 2 yrs old.  As I got to learn Inga's likes & strengths, I wanted to explore dog sledding.  Together the two of us are Road Less Traveled dog sled team & we live for snow!!

The work I do at the kennel not only benefits the dogs, but it is great therapy for me too. I am glad I can contribute to this team.  I started out working in the kennels, but have switched to a more behind-the-scenes role.
